Henkel Announces Availability of a New No Clean, Resin-Free, Halide-Free, Sustained Activity Flux
Multicore MF210 is extremely robust; provides maximum process window, good through hole penetration and reduced costs associated with no clean products
Designed specifically for surfaces with poor solderability and compatible with all solder alloys, Multicore® MF210 is now available to electronics professionals worldwide. The no clean, halide-free sustained activity flux has been formulated to work over a wide range of solder resists and is compatible with rosin and OSP based surface preservatives.
Multicore MF210 offers a maximum process window without resin, which satisfies the demand for applications requiring high performance and reliability. Additionally, the material allows for high speed soldering on conventional leaded and surface-mount components, good through hole penetration and is designed for optimum wetting of surfaces. And, Multicore MF210's no clean characteristic reduces manufacturer's costs, while ensuring minimal residues so that there is no interference with test probes.
The liquid flux has been formulated for use in foam, spray or wave fluxes similar to ordinary fluxes on standard wave soldering machines.
Multicore MF210 meets or exceeds the IPC-TM-650 2.3.32 Copper Mirror Test standard, and meets specifications for J-STD-004 SIR and Bellcore GR-78-CORE electromigration testing.
